Our farewell lunch with our dear team members.
Ezra James wins the race to Salt Lake. What a sweet and handsome boy!
Always hard to be away from home at Christmas time. We were glad Spence and Xan found family to be with in the East. Though we missed being with our loved ones, we received the second best thing as each of children shared their testimonies with us, which is the greatest gift any parent could desire.

Christmas day was a brunch with the area missionaries at the ward and then catching up with our kids and their families as they arose on Christmas morning 8 hours later.

She's fourth in the world right now. Watch for her in Russia, Noel Pace.)|
